i recently got a hair loss shampoo called nioxin. i'm wondering, to those of you that have had hair loss, have you used this? it seems like it's a treatment for men experiencing MPB. if so, did it work? if not, what shampoos should i look into?

hey david,

Yea im also looking into some good hairloss shampoos, I've been doing some digging and want to say that nizoral is pretty good, i haven't tried it myself but I've heard many other people say it was good.

Been using nizoral/tricomin myself... Don't know how effective the combo would be really, but i like to be proactive in these things!!

If you're talking about hair loss due to accutane then the shampoos mentioned are unlikely to help as these are for hormonal hair loss. The loss that occurs when you take accutane is called telogen effluvium which is when hairs are prematurely shed. There's a treatment in the u.k for this,can't remember what its called but boots sell it for about £23. Not sure if it works though.

Yeah we know terry, i just want to avoid being pushed prematurely into MPB, Tricomin feeds the hair follicles so i feel is of use in strengthening new hairs. Nizoral is also known to increase anagen hairs, which is exactly what we want in this case...
